The prequel to The Order: 1886.
The mysterious 1666 Amsterdam, the new IP by Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Désilets, who started it with THQ, lost it to Ubisoft in a dramatic and ironic twist, before finally regaining rights to the IP, has long been an enigma- but just recently, gameplay footage from the game released, that indicates that it definitely was in active development at one time, and more than just a name or title.
Désilets also confirmed on Twitter that he does plan on returning to the game and developing it at some point in the future (which makes sense, or else why would he have fought so vociferously for rights to it?). Which is good news, because the unreleased footage we have is definitely intriguing.
You can check out this footage for yourself below. For now, Désilets is working on Ancestors: the Humankind Odyssey, his next game with Panache Digital Games- so even if 1666 does happen, you shouldn’t expect to see it any time soon.
